Kansas City Chiefs rookie safety Juan Thornhill exited the team’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers early in the second quarter due to a lower leg injury.

Thornhill was blitzing on a play, planted his left leg and appeared to be tripped up by the turf. Thornhill did not put weight on his left leg as he left the field.

The Chiefs initially said Thornhill was questionable but then ruled him out. Kendall Fuller and Armani Watts are filling in at safety.

Thornhill tweeted shortly after he left the game.
